CHDS Faculty Eve Wittenberg is collaborating on a new study on the health-related quality of life of alcohol consumption. Led by investigators at the Bryan School of Business and Economics at the University of North Carolina Greensboro, the study will use national-level data to estimate health state utilities for all levels of drinking and for joint health states of alcohol consumption and comorbid conditions, to enable more accurate economic evaluation of alcohol prevention and treatment than has been possible to date. The project is funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism as a research capacity-building grant and includes training undergraduate and graduate students as part of its goal. Students will be included in many study roles including conducting data analyses, co-authoring publications, presenting at conferences/seminars/meetings, and holding internships, as part of study activities.
